CHNC challenge 475

These are my design cards for my CHNC challenge 475 -  please click on the link to find out what it's all about and I hope you'll be able to join in with your Christmas designs - anything goes as long as it's Christmas with the optional theme of 'quick and easy'.

This is a set of five quick and easy cards that I made to sell for charity before Christmas, using a Crafter's Companion embossing folder which I gently brushed with ink, adding the sparkly sentiments and mounting on to Kraft card blanks.

  10. Hi Hazel your cards are gorgeous. They make a lovely set. Thank you for joining us at Crafts Galore Encore Challenge Blog for challenge #72 which is Anything Goes. The sponsor is Bugaboo. Hugs Jackie DT xxx

  11. Clever stuff Hazel, and right at the time when you need simple but effective, love the inky finish to sort of raise the images. I put all my Christmas stamps away at the beginning of Jan, but the embossing folders live permanently in my folders box, so I may well have a go at emulating if you don’t mind!

  12. Love those embossed snowmen. Thank you for playing at The Male Room challenge.

  22. Hi Hazel, saw these and thought they were so lovely like snow. Surprised to find it was an embossing folder but yes it makes perfect sense!
